Asuka vs. Emma kicked off the WWE TLC pay-per-view. The announcers put over that Asuka was undefeated during her entire time in NXT. Fans seemed excited to see her because she got a great reaction during her entrance.
The goal of this match was to introduce her to fans that haven’t seen her before and they didn’t want to give too much away until she faces a bigger threat so this was a good way to introduce her to the masses. I was surprised that they got so much time to work because I would have expected that they would have Asuka dominate and get a quick win but I guess they needed to stretch things out to fill out the show. Asuka won with the Asuka Lock .
